May was a month of celebration in Santa Barbara County with many area students graduating from our local high schools and looking forward to bright futures.

Knight Real Estate Group is proud to support these ambitious students in their pursuit of postsecondary education through our involvement with the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara. Kelly is a member of the Scholarship Foundation’s Board of Directors and serves on the Steering Committee for the highly regarded South Coast Business & Technology Awards.

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara has been supporting area students in their higher education goals since 1962. In May, the Scholarship Foundation awarded roughly $7.1 million in scholarships to about 1,787 deserving students throughout Santa Barbara County for the 2024-2025 academic year.

The Scholarship Foundation is the largest community-based provider of college scholarships in the entire country, having cumulatively awarded in excess of $150 million to more than 65,000 county students since its founding.
